Forum: feature_films Subject: The General in HD

I have a copy of The General (1927) in HD released by Kino. It has a score by carl davis which i believe is copyrighted. However the film istself is public domain as you are probably aware. My question is if this version could be uploaded without the carl davis score is it considered public domain? The film has no Kino copyright burnt into the film anywhere and is exactly the same as any other version visually. The quality of it is amazing and would love to be able to share it with everyone on Archive

Remastered films are considered new works and under copyright. It's interesting that Kino didn't post a notice, though. This isn't required, but owners almost always do this anyway.

It is incredible that when a movie goes PD it can be edited, etc. to one's hearts content...including remastering. Upload the General in HD. Do it.
